Finding a New Winter Jacket | Hidepark Leather

HidePark X Fake Fabulous | Winter Style | Leather Jackets

Welcome to the Autumn/Winter selection from my leather jacket search.

See how I got on in my quest to find that perfect Spring/Summer leather jacket HERE.

I'm on a mission to shop less.
No throw-away fashion for me!

I plan to invest in pieces I LOVE and that play an important role in my wardrobe.
I'm determined to find quality pieces that I'll be able to wear for years to come.

Consequently, I've been politely declining many more collaboration proposals.
Mostly because I didn't feel the need to add to my wardrobe or the want to share the pieces with you.

However, today is different.

Today is all about the Leather Jacket and I'm happy to share these with you.

Leather jackets can be worn all year round (especially if you live in a colder climate like Scotland) and this year I'm on a mission to find a Winter Warmer to add to my collection.

Today I'm trying on some new styles and will hopefully find something that fits the bill.

I hope that while I'm having a look around it might help you to find something perfect that fits into your wardrobe too.

Of course, leather jackets are a great investment.
If you choose a fuss-free style or a classic shape, a leather jacket will never date and will last for years.
If you look after your leather it will look after you.
Some pieces even get better with age.
Many will make their way down the generations.

(I know my daughters have their eye on a few of my things!)

The brand I want to share with you today is called Hidepark.
I have a couple of their jackets and they never let me down.

{This is a paid collaboration but I must tell you that I would NOT be recommending them if I didn't believe that you'd be delighted with anything you bought!}

Hidepark sells the most beautiful quality coats and jackets that are made to last.
I'm always blown away by the price tags too.

Each item is fully lined and finished with care.

Looking at the prices of the HidePark jackets I wonder why other retailers feel the need to rip us off.

Let's take a look at a few affordable Winter options...

1. HOLLY: Classic Aviator style

This jacket is AMAZING.
Incredibly warm.
Bang on-trend.
Chic and stylish.
Edgy and fun.
It does it all!

Who doesn't love a classic aviator style?

This fab style also comes in a few different colours if this colourway doesn't float your boat.

2. ANNA: Quirky, feminine and Chic

This blue jacket is so chic and elegant but still full of personality!

It would work with LOADS of different outfits, adding a little "something" to a classic style.

I love the quilted effect of the leather and the simple cut.
It's a cracker!

If you're not a navy lady there are a few other colours to choose from.

3. DORA: Practical and Cosy

I LOVE this jacket.
In fact, it's my favourite!

I couldn't believe how comfortable and warm it was.
The finish is so good and the price is even better!

I would happily have kept this lovely coat (it's right up my alley!)
BUT I have something very similar and I'm determined not to duplicate.

4. CLARA: Minimal biker/aviator style

HidePark X Fake Fabulous | Winter Style | Leather Jackets
This jacket is another classic.
It has a feminine feel and would go with anything and everything.
(I'd even throw it over a dress in the evening!)
I love the colour of this jacket plus the fact that the collar is detachable so you can change the look as the season's change.
Don't you just love it when a piece is versatile?
I love getting more bang for my buck... or punch for my pound!

5. LOMOND: Something different!

HidePark X Fake Fabulous | Winter Style | Leather Jackets
This jacket surprised me!
Not only because I wasn't expecting a tweed jacket to come from Hidepark BUT because of how much I liked it...(Read: fell in love with it!).
This green and pinky/purple colourway made me unexpectedly happy PLUS there are other colours to choose from too.

It's smart and classic and chic and all of those good things.

It's also made from wool which was surprisingly warm considering how neat and lightweight it.
A win from me!

This is the piece I've decided to keep.
Not because it was my favourite (I loved Dora more!) BUT because of its versatility and practicality.

I'm channelling Farmer Giles here... and loving it!

Because it's sleeveless I can layer it over and under various coats and jackets in my wardrobe.
This can be a life-savour on the cold winter days (and nights).
A sleeveless gilet is also handy to pop on at home if it's a particularly cold day and you don't want your heating cranked up to MAX.

I've already been wearing and enjoying this gilet a lot already... see it HERE.

I'd LOVE to know which of these Winter warmers you would choose for yourself?
Or, what other colours you would pick?

  2. I have 2 favourites - Clara and Anna. Anna is quite dressy and would look great with both trousers and dresses. Clara looks snuggly and warm, just how i like to be.

    1. I love being cosy too Jill!
      I think Anna would be great in warmer weather or if we lived somewhere that didn't really get very cold :o)

  3. Your commitment to buying less is so admirable Sam.
    It just doesn't feel responsible or ethical to continue to consume fashion at that steady, rapid pace we've mastered in the past 20+ years. We are tantalized continually and I think peer pressure clearly goes beyond the teenage years as well!
    I love your hunt for a creatively, classic, kick-ass coat that will serve you for a long time! You will ALWAYS look cool dearest Sam! You have style, spunk, and attitude. You're a fashion influencer, evolving her intention to consume conscientiously while diplomatically mentoring your followers!
    GREAT POST!!!
